The Clinton County Industrial Development Authority held its regular meeting last Thursday morning, June 14 at the IDA-Welcome Center with five of six current sitting members present, along with administrator Charlette Koger and legal advisor Terran Helm.

The IDA is a seven-member body but Clinton Fiscal Court has yet to appoint a replacement for long-term member Janie Gibson, who resigned from the board earlier this year.

The board first voted to pay claims and bills and approved the monthly CCIDA expenditure reports as presented.

Board member Debbie Brown then moved to accept the resignation of Nina McIver, effective May 15, 2012, as part-time custodian/clerical assistant for the Industrial Development Authority. The motion was seconded by board member Glenn Ray Smith and passed by unanimous vote.

On a motion by board member Keith McWhorter, the authority members voted unanimously to donate $1,500 to the now annual Albany-Clinton County Chamber of Commerce July Fireworks Show, which this year will be held at the Clinton County Fairgrounds on Tuesday, July 3.

Board Chairman Jim Soma then made a motion that the Clinton County IDA once again participate in the Kentucky State Fair “Pride of the Counties” program during the state fair August 16-26 and pay one-half of the expenses toward the fair booth and other expenses. The motion passed unanimously.

The board once again entered into a closed session–following a motion by McWhorter–for discussion of “pending litigation.” The motion was seconded by board member Randy Speck passed by unanimous vote.

Upon returning to open session, no official action was taken and the meeting was adjourned.

The next regular meeting of the Clinton County Industrial Development Authority is scheduled for August 9 at 11 a.m. at the IDA-Welcome Center and is open to the general public.
